Description:

District Nine's prairies spawned the Progressives, back at the turn of the 20th century, and a fair few socialists in the 1930s–and in the Dark Days, the scattered Depots fought the Capitol by doing nothing: shipping no grain out, bringing nothing in, getting by the way folks out here always have–with hard work and ingenuity and more than a little luck.

So the Capitol sent everyone to the City, formed roving crews to plant and harvest as the seasons moved from South to North, and the depots became nothing but elevators, alone on the prairie at the ends of railroad lines, and crews crawled the spiderwebs of roads without seeing anyone else for weeks.

Hard to organize, out here. But there’s a few lonely rebels, meeting in the city in secret, waiting for a moment that’s come before on these plains. Electricity in the air like the sky before a storm, careful steps into something new...

And prairies know about storms.
